30 Pimp Up Your Tank

Pimp Up Your Tank

Posted on October 11, 2006 by team

This vehicle was made from Russian “BRDM”, if to translate literally it is “Combat Reconnaissance/Patrol Vehicle”, armored scout car made in Russia.

There were plenty of such in Arabic countries like Iraq or Iran or Syria also.

But this is not a regular military vehicle. It was bought by a Moscow entrepreneur and was pimped up heavily.

First of all it is an amphibian vehicle – it can both move by roads and swim by rivers or lakes.

It is powered with V8 5.5 diesel engine  to carry its multi ton body across the Russian roads. It has four general wheels  but there are four more, hidden under its bottom, if somebody comes to a road like this he can push a button and use four additional wheels to make his road.

It has of course a multi speaker sound system, GPS navigation, TV, DVD and a periscope to see clearly what’s going on when you are swimming across the nearest lake. Also there is a sonar mounted with which the car owner can monitor the water under his so to say car. Night vision system is there too.

The car is fully registred in road inspection so the owner can drive across the normal roads, and then go to the lake for some fishing or water skiing, after that at night he can come to Moscow casino without visiting home.

The front runner guard is taken from Lexus. And the bumper is used while swiming if to bump to a dock or to other boat.

    Don’t complain about parking in US city intil you try to drive in Kyiv. Sidewalks are too narrow to park such machine.

  3. Dominik says:

    This is by far the kewlest vehicle mod I have seen I want one !

  4. Fulbert says:

    Hell yeah, Dimon’s right. In Ukraine and Russia sidewalks are mainly used as free parking lots. Some s.o.b.’s are bold enough to walk on them, but a good hit with a bumper usually shows them who’s the boss.

    The “car” is sweet, btw. Though I pray it’s not too many of these on the road.

    As we say in Holland, a monkey can wear a golden ring, but it is and stays an ugly thing.

    Nice tuning

  8. Robert says:

    I used to want a land rover.

  9. Robert says:

    Actually, you can buy British military vehicles like this.

    I think one of them is called ‘Viking’, but there are many other designs, etc. Such as the probably much famed Land Rover Defender.

  10. Marius says:

    Just another expensive toy for the rich guys with kiddy brains. But it’s wonderful that Russian engineers are able to make such exotic and perfect things.

  11. Doug says:

    I guess this guy can ignore the Russian traffic police, at least until they become equiped with chrome-plated RPG-7s with delux ivory handles on their launchers.

  12. ilyich says:

    it looks like it would actually be dangerous to drive in crowded traffic: you can barely see out those tiny windows in front (maybe that’s what the periscope is for). 🙂

  13. You know, you are wrong about expensivity – I can easily buy BTR for $500, accesoires for $1500 – and voila – cool car for just $2000. You haven’t seen tuned VAZ 2101 yet! BTR is nothing near it!

  14. Gasher says:

    The periscope is used not for underwater driving but to observe the terrain witout getting hit by an occasional bullet.

  15. David says:

    Any T-80’s pimped up?

  16. Aleksey says:

    Is anybody know how to find the owner of this BTR? let me know pls: [email protected]
